Says one Gen X’er: “Ultimate Software is a company that is the absolute best at putting its employees first. First example, they still pay 100% of the medical for every single full-time employee and their families. The company has been on a growth pattern with respect to new employees and the benefit hasn’t even changed…and we are making money. That, to me, is truly unique (and unusual). I have been here for 14+ years, through hiring freezes and times when most other tech companies were finding ways to make some money by essentially laying off their workforce. I thought this benefit has to go at multiple points while at Ultimate, but it never budged. On top of that, today the company keeps stacking on the benefits, like team building budgets, team trips, food, exercise and diet professionals, money for exercising, discounts for healthy food, (they are really putting an emphasis on living healthy), training budget, tech gadget budget, to name just a few. The payoff for all the unique and unusual benefits is that their employees want to ‘care back’ and they put in whatever they can for the company. They work very hard for their company. I see that on many levels from my own dedication and commitment to my colleagues to the directors.”
Ultimate Software also appears at No. 5 on the list of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials.
